New York State Police are asking for the public’s assistance identifying a person of interest involved in a recent theft at Glenora Winery.
Police say the manager on duty said a black male, with a gray beard came into the winery on Wednesday, August 5th at 11:30 a.m.
He’s described as approximately 6 feet tall, slightly balding, heavy set, and wearing a green shirt with tan, khaki shorts.
The man walked around the store and ordered some wine at the front desk he then grabbed a shirt and concealed an SPCA donation jar containing over $50 in donations.
The man was unable to complete the wine transaction as his credit card was declined multiple times. He then left the store with the shirt and donation jar still in his possession, to use the ATM machine just outside the store.
Troopers say he proceeded to get his vehicle and leave. Police were unable to get video or a photo of the man, but after canvassing several other wineries nearby, the Miles Winery stated that they had a similar incident take place and saw the person leave in a gray Honda sedan.
State Police are asking the public if they can provide any information regarding this individual to please call the New State Police station in Dundee at 607-243-5133.
